IRVINE, Calif., April 24, 2014: Broadcom Corporation, a global innovation player in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, has reported unaudited financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.
Broadcom’s President and Chief Executive Officer Scott McGregor said, “Broadcom delivered overall results ahead of expectations in the March quarter. The upside was driven by strength in Broadband and Infrastructure, stronger-than-expected gross margins and continued operating expense discipline. In the current quarter, we expect momentum in Infrastructure and Broadband to continue, driven by service provider spending on network build outs and technology upgrades.”
Net revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $1.98 billion. This represents a decrease of 3.9% compared with the $2.06 billion reported for the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 1.0% compared with the $2.01 billion reported for the first quarter of 2013. Net income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the first quarter of 2014 was $165 million, or $0.28 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $168 million, or $0.29 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2013 and GAAP net income of $191 million, or $0.33 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2013.
GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2014 included a net gain on sale of certain assets of $52 million and purchased intangible impairment charges of $25 million, for a total positive impact to GAAP net income per share of $0.05. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 included restructuring costs of $17 million and settlement charges of $6 million, or $0.04 per share.
In addition to GAAP results, Broadcom reports adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share, referred to respectively as “non-GAAP net income” and “non-GAAP diluted net income per share.” A discussion of Broadcom’s use of these and other non-GAAP financial measures is set forth below. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively, appear in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading “Unaudited Schedule of Selected GAAP to Non-GAAP Adjustments.”
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2014 was $318 million, or $0.51 per share (diluted), compared with non-GAAP net income of $366 million, or $0.60 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2013 and non-GAAP net income of $400 million, or $0.65 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2013.
